    Pros

    Overall it was a great experience and a great way to get your feet wet in the industry. You get to work with clients needs fairly directly and learn how media works in an ad agency. You also have exposure to all other disciplines within the agency and get to learn a lot. People are willing to help and lend a hand whenever needed.

    Cons

    For the most part, you are with your intern group a lot. I had a really great group so it made that fun, but you aren't getting as much exposure to your specific section as as possible. Also, the interns work on a pro bono client, but the client does not have need for any media placement, so it is sometimes hard to determine exactly what you can do for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for being so open to meeting with anyone who walks in your door and leading by example.

    Pros

    Nice people. Great office space. Opportunity to work in all media for some decent size clients. Has been one of Denver's bigger, "true" ad agencies. Great past reputation. Good location in Lodo. Owned by a large creative holding company, OMNICOM.

    Cons

    It's no longer the same place that earned a great reputation during the last 30 years. Many of the most experienced people have left as a result of new top management. It is now full of less experienced young people who follow a few egotistical top people. It lost many big accounts in the last few years and is now much smaller, with less interesting accounts. There is no security there now. They have dropped many people with no notice in the last year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to impress or be cool. Be sincere. Treat people honestly and respectfully.
